Under Biden Administration, Canopy NWA Prepares To Resettle More Refugees

Canopy NWA
Joanna Krause is executive director of Canopy Northwest Arkansas.

The Biden Administration plans to reopen America to more international refugees seeking asylum from war-torn nations, as well as those fleeing political and religious persecution. That's after the Trump Administration vastly reduced their numbers. Joanna Krause, executive director of Fayetteville-based refugee resettlement agency Canopy NWA, says she and her staff have begun to prepare for more arrivals. Volunteers and donations are always welcome.
